Farewell My Friends.... Or Not

Fades into the sunset.....well, maybe not yet...

Tuesday, July 28, 2020 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Community

Hey guys, I have decided to spend a lot less time here, for various reasons.  (I have a list.)

Rather than just not ever show up, leaving some to wonder what happened to me, I decided to post this, just so you know I'm ok.

 

I may lurk now and then, and I will continue to test skins for a few people.

Otherwise, I'll not be around much going forward.  Please don't ask why, because I wouldn't wish to have to go there publicly.  Let's just say that WC and SD have served their purpose for me, and I'll be moving on.

 

I will leave my skins for anyone to enjoy as they wish.  

 

I will not be renewing any subscriptions, so I may show up as a non member at some point.

 

Yall skin your asses off, have fun!   Adios.

Hey Jim,

Not really sure, what actually happened. But I tried to help as much as I can on your issue. But, somethings, are beyond me. So, I really hope there is no bad feeling toward me on personal level. You have been helping me a lot before, and I will always grateful for that.

Take care Jim, I hope you change your mind, you surely be miss.

Jazlan.

Say it isn’t so. You can’t leave us. It feels like you’re breaking up with us in a text.   

Having said that, it must be something serious so I will respect your decision. Stay safe and healthy and don’t be a stranger my friend. We will always be here for you.

I certainly do understand his decision , I made the same decision and stopped contributing some time ago for my own undisclosed reasons. Now I have my own website.

Do what you have to do.  Doesn't have to be "All or Nuthin'".

Or, as Ned Kelly said on the gallows...."Such is life".

Nothing in this world is static.  Things change, people move on, and no amount of lamenting change has any effect.

We here wish you the best in your chosen direction...

Hey, Jim, this mightn't be the happiest news for many of us here at WC, but as others have said, you need to do what is right and best for you.  I took a bit of time away some time ago myself, and the break did help to sort myself out and return feeling so much better than before.

Hopefully you won't be a total stranger and will pop in every once in a while to let us know that you're okay.  In any event, do stay safe and well for us.  Best wishes always to you and yours, ol' mate.

Guys, I really appreciate the show of support.  The main reason for this thread is because most times, when someone "fades away" it leaves everyone wondering.

 

You guys do have me maybe reconsidering. Didn't really think many would care...lol.

My friend, this isn't about you, don't you worry. I'll always consider you a friend.

You're almost like a part of the furniture around here after all these years.... so yeah, there'll be plenty of us who care.  However, that doesn't mean to say you should reconsider.  Do what's right and best for you, and if you can, just pop in every now and then to say hi "I'm doing okay"

This is your second home here Jim.... and you're family.... family sometimes means fallouts.... don't deny the rest of your family your company because of that.... we're all here to support each other...especially in these extra trying times.... we've lost too many of our stalwarts over the past few years..... we need our superglue members to keep holding this place together...

You guys are too kind. And sweet.

 

I will stay a bit longer, see how things go.

 

Thanks a lot, peeps. You really are family, and maybe I let my frustration get the better of me sometimes.

I guess I'll keep a WC sub going, for now. And maybe one Object Desktop sub. Keep one Stardock rig.

Less buggy that way...lol.
